The Water Environment Federation (WEF) and the American Water Works Association (AWWA) joined together to speak with one voice on drinking water and wastewater issues. The 2011 Water Matters! Fly-In was attended by more than 160 people, from every U.S. state, representing a cross-section of the entire water community. To view a video clip from the event.

Radon Gas Exposure – the Second Leading Cause of Lung Cancer
We are all exposed to radiation from natural and man-made sources. Radon is a colourless, odourless radioactive gas formed by the radioactive decay of the small amounts of uranium that occur naturally in all rocks and soils. Radon in soil is the biggest source of Radon in indoor air and presents a greater risk than Radon in drinking water. Properties built in certain areas around the world are more likely to contain high levels of Radon due to the underlying geology and varying amounts of uranium present. When it...
Article Raises Concerns about Lead in Puerto Rico’s Drinking Water
Earlier this fall, WABE published the article, “Puerto Rico’s Tap Water Often Goes Untested, Raising Fears about Lead Contamination.” The piece highlights residents’ concerns over the health and safety of the water coming into their homes, schools and businesses. The article states, “According to data reported by the island’s water systems between January 2015 and March 2018, 97 percent of Puerto Rico’s population is served by a local drinking water system with at least...
ECT experts co-author chapters in groundbreaking new PFAS book
ECT, a global leader in cutting-edge solutions for water and air/vapor, announced today that five of its experts contributed chapters to a groundbreaking new book titled “Perfluoroalkyl Substances in the Environment,” which is the first book to provide a holistic view of the complex challenges presented by the emerging compounds per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). In the book, ECT experts provide insights on remediating PFAS, including an analysis of ECT’s innovative PFAS removal...

Save money – store your pH electrodes properly!
Combined pH electrodes (commonly pH electrodes) are electrochemical sensors which are in interaction with the sample. The strongest exposure concerns the most important parts of the electrodes, glass membrane and junction with the reference system in its back. For the storage of pH electrodes are some points to be considered. But first we give for better understanding of the principle a short view on the functionality. The principle of a pH electrode is that H+ ions penetrate the surface of special glasses and...
